Victims of Crime in the Judicial System

The research carried out by members of the research theme "Victims of Crime in the Judicial System" is mainly concerned with different aspects of the rights of crime victims. Some of the researchers are working on a more general level, where the focus is on the interaction between legal actors and crime victims when it comes to the possibility of legal regulations concerning treatment of crime victims in the judicial system. Others are working on a more specialised level, where the rights of especially vulnerable groups of crime victims are studied. Some researchers studies the rights of women that are subjected to intimate partner violence, others children as crime victims or victims of trafficking. On a theoretical level, the established legal discourses within criminal and procedural law are analysed and problematised, for example in the context of the discourse of the ideal victim.
